DESEJOS

Desejo a vocês...
Fruto do mato
Cheiro de jardim
Namoro no portão
Domingo sem chuva
Segunda sem mau humor
Sábado com seu amor
Filme do Carlitos
Chope com amigos
Crônica de Rubem Braga
Viver sem inimigos
Filme antigo na TV
Ter uma pessoa especial
E que ela goste de você
Música de Tom com letra de Chico
Frango caipira em pensão do interior
Ouvir uma palavra amável
Ter uma surpresa agradável
Ver a Banda passar
Noite de lua cheia
Rever uma velha amizade
Ter fé em Deus
Não ter que ouvir a palavra não
Nem nunca, nem jamais e adeus.
Rir como criança
Ouvir canto de passarinho.
Sarar de resfriado
Escrever um poema de Amor
Que nunca será rasgado
Formar um par ideal
Tomar banho de cachoeira
Pegar um bronzeado legal
Aprender um nova canção
Esperar alguém na estação
Queijo com goiabada
Pôr-do-Sol na roça
Uma festa
Um violão
Uma seresta
Recordar um amor antigo
Ter um ombro sempre amigo
Bater palmas de alegria
Uma tarde amena
Calçar um velho chinelo
Sentar numa velha poltrona
Tocar violão para alguém
Ouvir a chuva no telhado
Vinho branco
Bolero de Ravel
E muito carinho meu.

Carlos Drummond de Andrade

Good News

Hi everyone, it is Maya wrting to you because Elsa just came back from NYC and is very tired.
Elsa has good news for us! She says she was not kicked out of the trial! The CAT scan showed that some of the tumors GREW a little and some SHRUNK and there are NO NEW ONES in her belly!
Bye Bye for now MAYA!

Card carrying Radioactive Suspect

Status: Radioactive

Ms. Elsa Dias had a procedure in Nuclear Medicine at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Measurable levels of radioactivity may be detectable until: 12/20/2009.

In preparation for the Guantanamo trials in New York, NYPD is checking radioactive levels throughout the city, so I was given a card after my PET scan this morning, warning them that I may not be a terrorist. At least not a radioactive one.

Winter Magic

Maya went to our neighbor's house yesterday and made this beautiful "gingerbread" house. I needed a background to shoot the house, so Keri ordered last night's snow.

Back from Outer Space

Round four (of R7112) ended Tuesday night and I am feeling better. On this last cycle I decided (with permission from Hoffamn-La Roche) to take the drug at night, hopping that I would "sleep-off" the side effects. I am not sure if the change in schedule worked. Maybe. I felt less tired this time and so I was a little bit more active...

What did work was Uni (Japanese word for sea-urchin/ouriço-do-mar) Sushi,

Ginger


and Zé´s infinite patience with me when my appetite is reduced to zero and my taste buds messed up.
